I run a fee-based daycare type summer program for my center. It is a real
moneymaker for us. I am almost embarrassed to tell you what our art projects have
been. Last year, I took a crafts catalog and ordered every hokey kit and dohickey
they had. Stuff I could never get away with during the year, and which ended up
with completely foolproof products. Things like painter hats you decorate, mugs
with inserts the kids drew, little boxes covered with sea shells, tie-dye, sand
candles, etc. It was a really nice change and I didn't do any aesthetics, art
criticism, history, etc. Just demonstrated and let them at it. I go nuts
teaching like that all the time, but six weeks was fine.
